legendre_rule, a C code which generates a specific Gauss-Legendre quadrature rule, based on user input.
The rule is written to three files for easy use as input to other programs.
The Gauss-Legendre quadrature rule is used as follows:
Integral ( A <= x <= B ) f(x) dxis to be approximated by
Sum ( 1 <= i <= order ) w(i) * f(x(i))
legendre_rule order a b filenamewhere
